You are exempt from the law of fast (and perhaps from abstaining from meat if necessary for your strength according to the EWTN web site (a good example of this might be if you are suffering from pregnancy or lactational anemia) ).   If you are pregnant or nursing, however, it is best  practice to substitute some other form of appropriate sacrifice.

 
Perhaps you can discuss ways to alternatively sacrifice at your next mom's group gathering or the Catholic mom community online.
